Ofosu asamoah the executive secretary of the National Labour Commission (NLC) has revealed that he has been receiving death threats from some aggrieved persons on the labour front in the country.

Speaking with Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on The Asaase Breakfast Show on labour unrest in the country, Asamoah said: “One day, somebody came to my office with a knife… so we now have a police guard.”

“Because I sign some of the letters and declarations, they think I give the decisions, he came there with a knife, somebody also threatened me and he said: ‘I know your house’.”

Illegal strike 

The National Labour Commission (NLC) last week declared the strike by the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) as illegal.

The commission said the association did not follow the laid down procedures in declaring the strike.

UTAG embarked on the industrial action last Monday, citing government’s failure to adhere to a roadmap on conditions of service that both parties had agreed on.

At a meeting on Thursday (13 January), which was attended by Employment Minister Ignatius Baffuor Awuah, Deputy Finance Minister Abena Osei Asare, representative from Fair Wages and UTAG National Executives, the NLC however said UTAG’s concerns are genuine.
